Ella Fitzgerald – Hard Hearted Hannah lyrics

In old Savannah

I said Savannah

The weather there is nice and warm

The climate's of a southern brand

But here's what I don't understand

They've got a gal there

A pretty gal there

Who's colder than an artic storm

Got a heart just like a stone

Even nice men leave her alone

They call her "hard hearted Hannah"

The vamp of Savannah

The meanest gal in town

Leather is tough, but Hannah's heart is tougher

She's a gal who loves to see men suffer

To tease them and thrill 'em

To torture and kill 'em

Is her delight they say

I saw her at the seashore with a great big pan

There was Hannah pourin' water on a drownin' man

She's hard hearted Hannah

The vamp of Savannah, G-A

The call her "hard hearted Hannah"

The vamp of Savannah

The meanest gal in town

Talk of your cold, refridgerating mamas

Brotha she's a polar bear's pajamas

To tease them and thrill 'em

To torture and kill 'em

Is her delight they say

An evening spent with Hannah sitting on your knees

Is like travelin' through Alaska in your BVDs

She's hard hearted Hannah

The vamp of Savannah, G-A

Can you imagine a woman as cold as Hannah?

She's got the right name "the vamp of Savannah"

Anytime a woman can take a great big pan

Start pourin' water on a drownin' man

She's hard hearted Hannah

The vamp of Savannah, G-A

Spoken: Ooh! She's sweet as sour milk.
